Pita said the MFP coalition maintains the mandate to hike the minimum wage to Bt450 per day, but the new government will be willing to negotiate the reduction of other production costs in order to maintain the country's competitiveness.

They stop at the city of #Varanasi (Banaras) on the banks of the river Ganges, where the most revered temple of Kashi Vishwanath stands proudly. Aghori are devotees of Shiva, manifested as Bhairava, who seek salvation from the cycle of rebirth.
This freedom is the realization of one's identity with the Absolute.

The federal gun ban for #marijuana users is absurdly unconstitutional considering the legality & decriminalization of both medical & recreational marijuana at the state level

No one should go to jail for engaging in lawful activity & also choosing to exercise their #2A rights
Similarly, the lifetime gun ban for "domestic abusers" is problematic as a ban on the right to self-defense for those who have only been convicted of a misdemeanor

In America, you don't lose your right to vote, serve on a jury, etc. for a misdemeanor. That's how we punish felons
“Watching these cases and watching these judges strike down these unconstitutional categories is a great thing for America,” said @RealGunLobbyist federal affairs director of @GunOwners in @WashTimes

مقالتي حول الماريجوانا واخطارها الصحية والاجتماعية والاقتصادية ورأي الدين في الموضوع.

My latest article about Marijuana; its negative impact on health, community, and economy, as well as religion’s stance on the subject.

-Translation in Thread-

1- research shows very limited if any specific advantage for marijuana (THC, CBD, etc) in treating any medical conditions. And to date, the FDA has not approved a marketing application for cannabis for the treatment of any disease or condition.
2- there is some research that shows some applications in adjunct treatment of a rare kinds of epilepsy ( Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome) and also as an appetite stimulant in cancer, AIDS or Alzheimer’s patients.

This is a good story about what a scumbag @Kelly_McMillin is there @chief_filice.

So there I was getting a rapid COVID test (sold out) and who do I see? The guy who dumped #Salinas for #Marijuana.

Now I've known this sick puppy since 1988 when he was hired by SPD. He tries to

shake my hand after calling me by name, the old pleasantries, and I told him to take his hand back, I'm not shaking it and he immediately blows up. Gets in my face and flips me off, comes up nose to nose with me like he wants to punch me and I ask him what's going on with

the marijuana business and he is still yelling fuck you's and calling me an asshole. (This is a complete change from the 32 years I've know the scumbag) and he is still throwing F bombs, crying out "why don't you go back to your basement and get on Twitter". 😂

In 2002, Mike Hackett (convicted cocaine trafficker) was pushing to have his own @CityofSalinas Airport Hanger - just like Tanimura & Antle, and D'Arrigo Farms

Word on the street back then was Hackett was storing a Ferrari in a hanger at the airport and routinely made trips to

Vegas in a plane that was made available to him - one question is whose plane was it and what hanger did Hackett park his Ferrari?

On or around the same year, 2002, Hackett was forced out of Valley Pallet (a business his father and mother created) for "unknown reasons".

Just 8 years later (2010) as Marijuana legalization is on the table and coming to California, Hackett is well positioned to become MoCo's #Marijuana kingpin - he used money to buy greenhouses when the flower growers were going bankrupt from increased competition.

11 common ways men damage their #sperm without knowing

1. Tight underwears
2. Hot baths
3. Infections
4. Varicoceles
5. Laptops
6. Drugs
7. Mobile phones
8. Smoking
9. Marijuana
10. Heavy drinking
11. Steroids

A thread 🧵

{Share to who needs this!}
Wear boxers instead of tight pants, & go to bed naked if you want to become a father!

Wearing tight #underwears like pants or shorts keep your testicles closer to the body, leading to warmer temperatures that may kill sperm & lower your sperm count.
Bathing with #hotwater frequently exposes your testicles to heat, which can reduce your sperm count.

Same thing happens to men who use saunas often.

In fact, if you're worried about infertility, it's best to bath with normal or lukewarm water.

Avoid hot water baths!

This is CA State Senator @CASenCaballero in 2001 when I confronted the @CityofSalinas regarding @SalinasPD promotional process that led to terrible promotions because the entire process was rigged & not on merit. They used this to promote people who looked the other way on

clearly criminal conduct within the City of Salinas - where Caballero was just starting out as a new Mayor.

Ultimately @Kelly_McMillin was a beneficiary of this rigged promotional process, becoming chief in 2012 and retiring to work in in #marijuana in 2016/17.

McMillin associated with known narco-traffickers as a police chief.

That was Anna Caballero's corrupt influence on Monterey County law enforcement. It wasn't the beginning and it isn't the end, but the unprecedented corruption experience in Monterey County - largely

For all you driverless cars fanatics, the governor's #nybudget proposal extends the existing pilot
program for testing of autonomous vehicles for another two years. Also calls for ending the state's "one-hand on the wheel" requirement with regards to autonomous
Governor's #nybudget would make ALL vacation rentals subject to state and local sales taxes. Taxes would be collected by renting service (#airbnb, VRBO, etc.).

These types of local taxes are collected in a piecemeal fashion based on various county agreements.
Gov. Cuomo proposes giving counties the ability to retain their 4% local sales tax rate without repeatedly getting authorization from the state to go above 3%. This would eliminate a lot of legislative busy work in Albany.

N. D. Cal. 1984

Conspiracy to import #marijuana, 21 U.S.C. § 963; willfully subscribing to a false tax return, 26 U.S.C. § 7206(1)

And this wasn't some dime bag weed dealer. Phil and a guy named Bruce Perlowin (Google it) ran $985,000,000 through

a money laundering entity called First Cabin LLC - located at? #CanneryRow

Isn't that right @MontereyPolice? <~ proud moment for MPD. All under their nose 😉

A bunch of cops wives worked for First Cabin LLC - which is odd.

These people ran boats Phil and his homeboys

purchased for $11,000,000.00

They named their boats various versions of 'Taylor Day'

THE Taylor Day was seized by the Nicaraguan government.

.@bradleyzeve has a bias, why?

"Thus far, the rest of the Monterey County press corps has declined to take on this topic, partly because of tensions between the local media & Schneider while he was running Bernal’s successful sheriff’s campaign in 2014."…

The @mcweekly has no business withholding important news from the community they serve because they are butt-hurt over a political consultant who ran a campaign for @SheriffBernal (a guy @bradleyzeve has gone soft on because of his weird relationship with Armanasco & Panetta)

But even the claim that it's "hurt butts" causing local, dilapidated print journalism, like the @mcweekly, @MontereyHerald and @salnews to ignore the illegal and consequential conduct of Steve Bernal following his 2014 Sheriff's race win.

It isn't.

Link to live stream of the hearing on the #marijuana reform bill here:

Chairman @RepMcGovern begins by saying it's a historic day, because the rules committee is addressing marijuana reform. #cannabisnews
GOP Rep. Rob Woodall says that if we refuse to enforce federal laws, we should repeal those laws.

Adds though that he has letters from AAA and the Surgeon General saying there are still worries about fully reforming marijuana reform.

Political consultant - charged with rape in Monterey County, at a local fmr. @CityofSalinas council-members house (who now works as a political consultant).

The case is grinding its way through the MoCo judicial system with a jury trial scheduled for February 2021.

This trial should prove to be interesting for two reasons. @SalinasPD's role in the investigation. @MCoSheriff Sgt. Bryan Hoskins digging in and pushing the case forward - as he is supposed to do (well done).

The second reason is an @FBI investigation into Fickas' role in

a wide ranging, public corruption investigation. Information revealed during the rape investigation led to leads which allegedly implicated multiple public officials - including county supervisors John Phillips & Louie Alejo receiving cash money from Fickas associates

"Schneider did not name the former elected official but one of the women who says she had an affair with the sheriff provided the location and other details of one of their regular meeting places, which turns out to be owned by Butch Lindley."…

The @CA_FPPC must vigorously investigate this case @GavinNewsom

"Schneider said in the complaint that some of the accusations he wishes to lodge with the state are sensitive to the point that he hopes to share them with the FPPC staff in conversation rather than in writing."

Behind this one complaint the @CA_FPPC must refer any matter where it finds criminal conduct by @SheriffBernal, or the other investigations into:

2️⃣. Supervisor Louie Alejo. IBID @SupervisorAlejo

Congressman @RepJimmyPanetta,

Can you explain your relationship with Plasha Will and her relationship to Chris Marohn, his wife Megan, John Fickas & others?

What was their relationship to the Democrats in Monterey County, the Republicans in San Luis Obispo County and the RW?

What was Plasha Will and John Phillips' role with "Californians for Law and Order PAC" which registered in San Benito County to hide their role in the Miller/Bernal 2014 Sheriff's race?

Did John Fickas, @SupervisorAlejo and Sergio Sanchez run phone banks using disposable

cell phones (as they were known to do for fmr. Supe. Lou Calcagno & fmr. #Salinas Mayor Dennis Donohue) later claiming they knew nothing about nada?

Do you see?

What was the CFLO PAC's relationship with G. Amber Johnson, once a political consultant to Congressman ISSA?
